a deal. m.l.b. has to have something right. i think they have probably everything right. just a second, bill. m.l.b., they were trying to have a, you know, this deal with a-rod. m.l.b. says he obstructed the investigation. that is a very big deal. and, of course, a-rod, if he was a biogenesis boy to the max and using this stuff for several years, my goodness, is baseball going to get serious or not? are they going to send a message not just around the league but to kids that their role models are going to be caught? this is a major watershed for major league baseball. i think it's terrific what they're doing and i think a-rod deserves the brunt of all of this. >> bill rhoden, go ahead. you know i love you, christine. this is not about lifetime achievement. this is not a lifetime achievement award. this is about this specific penalty. this is about this specific incident. it's not about everything else. you know, you go back to that list, about four or five years ago there were 99 people on a list, supposedly people who flunkedded the test. the only name, the only name that came out was
, alex rodriguez, who will likely be punched out by the mlb for 214 games. but the story doesn't end there. it appears a-rod will appeal his suspension, allowing him to continue playing during that process. that means we're probably in for an extra innings affair here, and he's in chicago today expecting to be in the lineup, even with the longest non-lifetime ban in baseball's history anning over his head because, as many yankees fans have grown accustomed to in these last few years, it appears a-rod plans on going down swinging. katy tur is in chicago. the yankees will be back in the bronx later this weekend. will a-rod? >> reporter: i don't know. that's the big question. a lot of fans say they do want him to come back. the yankees are struggling. they don't have jeter right now. they need a big name in there to help them along. there are others who say he's a cheater, that he should get thrown out. a-rod doesn't have a lot of love even out here. he, in some respects, hasn't been clenched when he's needed to be. he hasn't been so lovable. in a lot of ways, he's a player people love

but never failed a drug test. mlb extended his suspension because the league feels he obstructed their investigation. so he joins ryan braun as the biggest names and faces in this drug suspension. i'm surprised more players didn't appeal the suspension. it tells me the players union is on the same side of this issue as the league and the union is cooperating rather than blocking this drug clean up. >> interesting. thank you, fred. >>> witness es say a man under arrest in connection with a deadly rampage on a venice beach board walk was out looking for blood. surveillance video shows the man scanning the crowd, getting into his car and swerving and ramming into people on saturday. police say the driver, 38-year-old nathan campbell, from colorado, turned himself into police two hours later. >> there was no horn honking, nothing. he was just driving, doing like 35, 40 just running people over. >> right now they booked him on a murder charge. the further charges will come when they consult with the district attorney's office. >> an italian woman on her honeymoon was killed in the ra
.com and mlb on fox, and jeff foster, sports editor for "the wall street journal." thanks for joining us this morning. this is not a happy day for the mlb regardless of a-rod but there are other all-stars being implicated in all this and they face 50-game suspensions. what does this say about major league baseball, jeff? >> i think major league baseball is obviously trying to make a statement here and in many ways they're trying to make alex rodriguez the scapegoat for all this. they have had a lot of problems for steroids for a long time. this goes back to the late '90s. they turn ad blind eye on it for a while and they're trying to catch up to clean up the sport. even after the new drug testing rules it is still an epidemic. kelly: ken, if a-rod faces the kind of suspension we're hearing, he could be suspended for 214 games. is that a equivalent for a lifetime ban for him? he is what, now, 38? he would be 40 by the time the ban would end? would he be able to play? >> very good question. if he sits out this season and next and that obviously will not happen because he is playing through
then that the mlb's announce many comes on the same day that a-rod is slated to make his season debut after several injuries have kept him away from the big leagues for over nine months. yankee outfielder vernon wells summed up the situation saying it should be a bit of a circus. according to the mlb, rodriguez not only abusd banned substances but also tried to destroy evidence once an investigation was under way. in typical achlt rod fashion, a-rod is placing the blame on everyone but a-rod. >> there's more than one party that benefits from me not ever stepping back on the field and that's not my teammates and it is not the yankee fans. when all this stuff is going on in the background and people are finding creative ways to cancel your contract and stuff like that, i think that's concerning. >> the man accused of cheefting claiming he's being cheated out of his $90 million contract. joining me today, washington bureau chief for buzz feed, john stanton, founder and president of the center for social inclusion, maya wiley. from sirius xm, chris "mad dog" ruse sew and benjamin wallace wells. "the ha
and fight until the very end. he has the unions backing as well, saying that the mlb is going to fight vigorously for a-rod in this case. it's a question of how much mlb and bud selig are abusing their powers in terms of finding what some of these abusers are. the 12 others named today took their 50-game suspensions. a-rod is going to appeal. it's the longest suspension for a guy of that magnitude since a guy that was famous around here 100 years ago. joe jury ar dye is going to talk in about an hour or so, about 5:15 central time. >> i want to read you a tweet, ultimately although today will be a day of unfamiliary for major being baseball it's a tremendous step in the right direction for the game we love. do you agree with that? >> i think it's a step in the right direction for what bud selig is trying to do. what he is able to get away with in the court of law is going to be interesting. the union has to do what it thinks it has to do in terms of supporting these players, doing what they need to do from a union standpoint in protecting them. there is all this wondering about whether
and other sports ban its use. the mlb also suspended 12 other players for 50 games. three of those players are former or current all stars. but none is as high profile as alex rodriguez. the three-time american league mvp has earned a whopping $300 million over his career. he is right now fifth on the all-time home run list. a rod also faces the most serious accusations in this scandal by far. we have team fox coverage of today's developments. trace gallagher is live with more on those other 12 players. first, let's get to adam housley. a rod spoke in about the last hour. take us through it if you would. is it is about a half an hour ago. never commented on whether he he took performance enhancing drugs. he summed up the situation like this. >> there is nothing about it has been easy. all of it has been challenging. i'm sure there has been mistakes made along the way. we're here now. i'm a human being. i have had two hip surgeries. i have had two knee surgeries. i'm fighting for my life. i have to defend myself. if i don't defend myself, no one else will. >> right before that his manager h
. sources close to the case say he also obstructed mlb's investigation into the biogenesis clinic accused of providing the drug. rodriguez is the highest paid player in professional baseball. if the suspension holds, he could lose out on more than $30 million in pay from the yankees. >> rodriguez is 38 years old. a suspension until the 2015 season could end his career. >> this is a guy who would then be 40 years old. having had two hip surgeries. so it is highly unlikely that he could ever even think about playing again. >> 14 players face discipline. but rodriguez is by far the most high profile and the athlete likely to receive the lengthiest suspension. teresa duncan, cbs news, new york. >>> major league baseball is reportedly willing to shorten rodriguez's suspension if he agrees not to appeal the decision. >>> bodies were scattering. bodies were flying in the air. people were screaming. >> surveillance cameras caught a car driving into a crowd of beach fans in southern california. why witnesses say it looks like the driver did it on purpose. >> and the 4-year-old gets re- elected as
rodriguez yet. we are awaiting a release from major league baseball. mlb source tells him there will be a release and no presser. it looks like they are leaning to a couple of releases and a lot of speculation that a rod will be suspended from this year and the entirity of 2014. and the commissioner could ban him for life under the collective bargaining agreement. it could be a major stand off here and we await the major developments. >> this is a shocking scene in california. a power plant implosion goes terribly wrong. and hundreds of people had gathered in bakersville to watch the demolition and flying snap nel injured some. >> they would implode this thing and a huge crowd gathered to see it and people were camping out overnight to make sure they had front row seats and they set up a security perimeter around the plant and the fire department pushed it back further to be safe. it was not far enough. and remember, in an implosion, things are supposed to fall in and listen to the implosion and watch the shrapnel fly. looking at the shrapnel. it is difficult to see. the p
and a dozen others have been fingered by the mlb for using performance-enhancing drugs, particularly this clinic in florida, or frequenting it, where all of this went down. rodriguez, the only one of those players fingered who is appealings. we'll keep you posted. >> new signs the healthcare law rollout may be down and out because of growing union opposition. i want you a take a look at this picture of politico. this is not a typical viewer of cnbc. shows a lone volunteer working the phones at a proobamacare event in virginia just yesterday. a lot of empty seats around hear. while it is not indicative of all of these types of events, at politico reports this is not a good start, and dr. ben carson says it's not reason to stop the whole healthcare law right now. i was just kidding about the cnbc. i used to work there love the people there but having said that, doctor, when you lose, for example, unions that were instrumental in getting this over the finish line, and now they're worried about their plans being taxed because they're especially generous, you lost the final wall of port,
association by no means was that softening there for the statement from michael weiner, the head of the mlb pa after the suspension was doled out where he said a-rod was not treated fairly. they think bud selig went out of his power here. they are going to fight for alex rodrigu rodriguez. >> i like bud selig. the first time the guy used drugs, he broke the rules. he got caught. then he said he wouldn't do it again. then he got caught doing it again. he tried to cover it up and now he's finally caught and appealing. why would you take his side? why would anybody take his side unless they were a union shop steward. >> in this case, that's the case. does anybody who's objective take his side? >> it's not a matter of taking rodriguez' side. he is due rights. he was not going to take the medicine that major league baseball was doling out, swallow it and in essence ending his career. you don't think he's coming out after being out of baseball for two years and say you know what, i'll take my $61 million and go home. in all due respect to bud selig and the owners, baseball profited during the years
game suspension, includes the rest of this year and all of next year. mlb cited use of performance enhancing drug, trying to cover it up and obstruct the investigation. rodriguez will appeal and is expected to speak in moments. the appeal allows him to keep playing, play thaeb and bat cleanup for the yankees as they take on the white sox in chicago. the 38 stands to lose 38 million for this year and next if this stands. but that's not all. >> this is a stain keeps him out of hall of fame, keep him from breaking the all-time home run record, and now he is another guy who had a lot of talent who people enjoyed watching play who is staying forever. >> and says i am disappointed with the penalty and intend to appeal and fight this through the process. he wasn't the only player suspended, including big names like nelson cruz, an outfielder and detroit tigers johnny peralta had 50 suspensions. they're in the middle of a pennant race. the appeal could be heard in ten days. there have been calls to move up the process. potentially, a-rod could play another 20 games before it is all decided
. what we have right now in terms of the game, it's a waiting game to see what mlb decides to do specifically in terms of that suspension. >> jason, let me jump in. i think rachel nichols is about to break the news. rachel, what are you learning in the last 60 seconds that we haven't been talking? >> you may have seen me leaning over my desk. i was reading a press release from major league baseball. they have announced the suspensions of the 12 players, the players who have accepted their 50-game suspensions. they have not included alex rodriguez on that statement, so we are still waiting for the a-rod portion of this. but it is notable, 12 players suspended for using performance enhancing drugs. several star players on that list including johnny peralta of the detroit tigers, including nelson cruz of the texas rangers, guys who are basically saying, i give. you caught me. and they are accepting these suspensions. that is huge. we are still awaiting word of what's going to go on with alex rodriguez. interesting to see this trickle out the way it is. i mentioned that espn report t

of these players. for the most part we've been told that mlb has dealt with these players, their agents and the players association. that's allowed them to get them to agree -- to get to how much they were involved. alex rodriquez along with ryan vaughn. he was the mvp last year. those are the two biggest nails. vaughn agreed to the suspension a few weeks ago. the latest report is this -- it was first gonna be at noon eastern. 9:00 local time. we're being told it may be pushed to 3:00 eastern. we'll hear what they will do. we've been told they will ban alex rodriquez for the rest of this year and all of next year. roughly 214 games. that's $34 of his salary. he will appeal that ban. when that happens, it will take about 20 days or so before it goes in front of an arbitrator and the final decision will be made. he could be banned from baseball and play, 15, 16, 20 games in the middle of a pennant race. he may be allowed to play as he's banned at the same time. it's very interesting to see how it will play out. for bay area fans a couple of other names bartolo colin is expected to be ment
masters, have a good day. [laughter] cheryl: well, the business, the business of baseball, mlb commissioner bud selig's call on just how hard baseball will come down on a-rod and others in the steroid scandal expected at any moment. no guidance at this point, but we are expecting something from bud selig. millions on the line for a-rod and these other players mixed up with the florida lab. this dates back to january. we've got foxbusiness.com senior correspondent dun son pyle and charles payne. charles, he is still owed at this point $8.5 million, charles, from the yankees, that's for the rest of his salary, another 28 million for the last four years of his contract. all of that is in jeopardy now, correct? >> well, it's all in jeopardy particularly if there's a lifetime ban. apparently, that's one of the things they've been trying to negotiate with him, if he would sent a deal, you know, whatever their deal is and not fight back, then he would still be able to resume his career after next season, if not, they'll try to come down harder. we're essentially talking about a gigant
completely, no pub intended. >> it's not going to be a clean case what mlb is working here, we don't know the quality of their evidence, we don't know the quality of their witnesses and how this ends up. the mediator has the power here, he can settle in between. he can remove the suspension, which i would say would be pretty highly unlikely. he could uphold the suspension or settle somewhere in between, which is where i think most fans and people following this story feel where it should end up. you get the feeling if they did meet somewhere in between, it would be difficult for rodriguez. >> let's talk about him individually. let's say it's through 2014. he's 40 years old. he's been challenged by injuries. how much game will he have left in him at that point? >> his contract takes him through the year, 2017. the extension he signed back in 2007. so, there was an assumption that rodriguez was going to play until he was 42 years old. right now he's gone through two hip surgeries in the last two years, but he's still, you look at him as a player. he's still a little rusty in the minors but
in the penalty that mlb imposed but you didn't deny the charges. do you deny that you used p.e.d.s? >> we'll have a form to discuss all of that and we'll talk about it then. >> alex, do you feel that this is a witch hunt by major league baseball? >> a what? >> a witch hunt. >> i don't want to discuss that. i don't know what the motivation is for any of this. but i'm going to respect the process. i feel good that we have an opportunity to do that in the right platform. and we're going to state our case. >> what are the likelihoods that during the process of the appeal and you see the evidence that major league baseball may have against you, that you would drop that appeal and go on as life goes on? >> i'm sorry, repeat the first part of that question. >> what are the chances that during the appeal, you see the evidence that major league baseball has against you, they have to show you that, is it likely that you would back away from the appeal and go on and take the punishment? >> if i'm understanding your question properly, we've seen everything. again, there will be a time and a place for all of
have said something on friday that really irked the officials at mlb because -- >> he said a series of things. he doesn't trust the yankees. he comes out every now and then and says things. >> he doesn't trust the yankees. how can the yankees trust him? there's no taking ownership of anything except for the money. and that's the problem with a-rod is people, for some reason, people don't like him. and andy pettitte -- >> jealousy about the money? >> i think andy pettitte, they said, had an arm injury. took some drugs. wasn't supposed to. admitted to it and stopped using and went on the field and everyone loves andy pettitte because he's a loveable guy. >> i love him. i've actually met him. they are adorable. >> we had them on even. >> that's right. but at another event when he was being honored. salvation army honored him one year. this guy for some reason there's this arrogance, hubris, this whole other vibe going. people don't like him. that's part of it. they're not rooting for him. >> if he comes back after the season and a half of being banned, he'll be about -- he'll be 40. an
